FreeBSD limits the length of mount point names to 88 chars. The reasons for this are somewhat esoteric, but has to do with aligning a memory structure on page boundaries[1]. You can patch the mount binary to use a larger limit or to remove it all together[2] but this may cause crashes. I have successfully removed the check (also for vagrant with nfs) and ...

What I understand is your situation: Data is on pg4 and should go to server remote. You have the directory with the data mounted via NFS on mass1. This is what will happen: If you run the rsync on mass1, e.g. rsync -av /mnt/pg4/data user@remote:/data, the data will be copied per NFS to mass1 and then copied to remote via rsync. If you run the rsync ...

You can only use rsync to connect to the webdav share if you first mount the webdav share on a system that you can ssh to. For example, in linux you can use something like davfs. After you do that, the webdav share will appear as a regular filesystem on your system. So for example, if you used davfs to mount the webdav share on your linux machine ...

This is my mountall.sh script after adding the mkdir command: mount_all_local() { mkdir -p /mnt/tmp; mount -a -t ...

It looks like the openSUSE installer placed a bunch of directories under /var onto btrfs subvolumes. I do not know how you would disable this behavior in the installer. However, for this installed system, if you need to get rid of the subvolumes, you can probably boot into rescue mode, mount /var and mount the subvolumes, then for each subvolume mounted at ...
